18th Birthday

I was asked to make a card for a Boy/Lad who is turning 18 soon, he has in the past appeared on Young Musician of the Year and is going to Music Collage later this year. This is the card that I came up with. I started by embossing some black card in an embossing folder with music on from Crafters Companion and then added some Gold gilding wax to the raised areas and around the edges. The sentiment dies were from Tattered Lace and All occasion dies, the music related dies are from Tonic. All were cut from gold mirri card with the man being filled in with the waste of a die cut in white. I used gold mirri card for the matting on the 8x8 card base.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Fabulous card, Sue. Masculine cards for teenagers always seem difficult to make, but you've cracked it with this one. xx
